Located directly across from Bethlehem Central High School, the Swift Preserve provides flat and quiet trails through ferns, forests, and wetlands.

A gift from the Swift Group in 2000, this 22-acre preserve provides flat, easy trails along wetland and forested areas. The preserve was established to protect remaining wetlands after construction on neighboring parcels. With direct connections to nearby neighborhoods, Bethlehem High School, and Delaware Avenue, the property has been integrated into science curriculum by the Bethlehem Central School District.
Accessible by CDTA Route 18! This preserve is a short walk from the Delaware Ave/Cherry Ave stop. (Use the preserve entrance on Delaware Ave. across the street from Bethlehem Central High School.)
